Quick Wins

Design a welcome email journey

Use these 20 features for your first welcome and 10 options to make follow-up nurture emails more effective. You’ll learn how to review your current effectiveness and create a multi-step great welcome journey with examples of the best emails from top global brands.

What will I learn?

In this Quick Win from email marketing experts Jenna Tiffany and Dave Chaffey you will learn:

  • 20 essential features of the perfect welcome email
  • How to review the effectiveness of your existing mails
  • How to expand your welcome programme into a welcome journey
  • 10 options for different emails in a welcome sequence
  • Techniques to review and improve your welcome emails

How is this Quick Win structured?

Thinking about the situation our members may be in with their emails, we have taken the common situation where you might have no welcome email or just a single email you are looking to make work harder. Or you may be looking to start or improve a series of emails. So, there are two main parts of this quick win, i.e. we look at improving your first email first and then go onto look at the whole sequence.
